2 billion-year-old African nuclear reactor proves that Mother Nature still has a few tricks up her sleeve

2 billion-year-old African nuclear reactor proves that Mother Nature still has a few tricks up her sleeve | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
There has only ever been one natural nuclear reactor found, but study of how it worked, and why, is still informing nuclear decision-making to this very day.

NuPECC Brochure “Light to Reveal the Heart of Matter”

NuPECC Brochure “Light to Reveal the Heart of Matter” | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
NuPECC, the Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee (http://www.nupecc.org/) is contributing to the International Year of Light with a brochure “Light to Reveal the Heart of Matter”. We would like to show the many facets how the electromagnetic spectrum – light in its broadest sense – is featured in nuclear physics research, from high-energy gamma-rays down to scintillation light and lasers, looking into nucleons and nuclei, and connecting to other fields such as astrophysics and medicine.

Experimental study of the 66Ni(d,p)67Ni one-neutron transfer reaction

Experimental study of the 66Ni(d,p)67Ni one-neutron transfer reaction | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The quasi-SU(3) sequence of the positive parity $\ensuremath{\nu}{g}_{9/2},{d}_{5/2},{s}_{1/2}$ orbitals above the $N=40$ shell gap are assumed to induce strong quadrupole collectivity in the neutron-rich Fe $(Z=26)$ and Cr $(Z=24)$ isotopes below the nickel region. In this paper the position and strength of these single-particle orbitals are characterized in the neighborhood of $^{68}\mathrm{Ni} (Z=28,\phantom{\rule{0.16em}{0ex}}N=40)$ through the $^{66}\mathrm{Ni}(d,p)^{67}\mathrm{Ni}$ one-neu
